What’s covered on the day?

The management of open wounds is one of the most common skills required by healthcare staff. This study day gives delegates the opportunity to gain an understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of wound closure, specifically in relation to traumatic wounds. The day will focus on key professional issues, traumatic wound assessment and management, and examine choices made regarding wound closure, including suturing and gluing.


A simulated competency assessment will take place at the end of the session, supervised by our Tutor allowing delegates to return to the workplace and put to practice what they have learnt, until deemed competent within their organisations guidelines and protocols. A Certificate of Attendance will also be issued, valid for 3 years.
